Overview

We invite you to experience our stunning Cape Dutch inspired estate: nestled beneath the magnificent Palisades, our property cuts an impressive figure against the dominant red wine grapes we are known for, planted in the volcanic soil of Stags Leap. Join us and enjoy delicious estate wines, warm and generous hospitality, and breathtaking views of the Napa Valley; or, elevate your experience with a reservation for a behind the scenes tour & tasting. Here is Cabernet Sauvignon like no other. In the acclaimed Stags Leap District of Napa Valley, Chimney Rock Winery transforms the enticing potential of the world’s most exalted varietal into riveting reality. The ingredients: family ownership with a global perspective and a steadfast dedication to quality; a property where ideal growing conditions and careful nurture combine to deliver ripe, concentrated grapes; and a winemaker whose passion for her craft blends science, artistry and intuition, to produce graceful, richly textured wines.

But seriously for the price you can get some waaaaay more complex cabs for the same price. This place is a typical fancy estate that produces high quality but lacks soul. Check our Renteria's Pearl line.
